POINTS OF INTEREST
Avril is a devout worshipper of Heshtail, but not necessarily of the way the church portrays him. She grew up in a place where people made their own names, and saw the gods as they felt would be the most useful to them, if not the most correct. She does do a candle-lit vigil every new moon in his honor, but often loses track of his other holidays to the blur of the road.
Heshtail’s followers tend to have an interesting sense of mercy, in that they will not hesitate to kill someone to put them out of their misery, if it becomes obvious that healing will do nothing for them. Her particular brand of justice is dealt on a case-by-case basis, and often she worries if her choice really was the right one.
Because of the varied nature of working as a lone healer, defender, and hope-bringer, Avril can adjust her skill set to work with others like her. If she needs to be a shield for a weaker comrade, she can. If she needs to be more of a healer, she can do that too. While she has generally worked alone in the past, Avril recognizes that there is strength in numbers, and that she alone cannot hope to defeat the evil in the occupied kingdoms.
